Straka is a dumb ass, everyone knows it was $45 mill he was asking for.

Straka said it was a rumor and of course GSP would deny it why would he admit this when negotiations haven't even started. Phone Post

GSP himself said a couple years ago he was making 4-5 million a fight. So 8 million a fight now isn't that far fetched. The only part I would question is the 50 million dollar request to fight Anderson.

Ye, I hope you really question the 50 mil request, now that GSP himself said it's bullshit.

Seems questionable.

It sounds like something someone would say jokingly. "Yea, I'll fight him for 50 million dollars." Straka probably took it literally and thought he had a scoop or something. God the MMA media sucks. Phone Post

The fact that MMA "journalists" continue to report things that have no basis in verifiable fact is sad and irresponsible. Phone Post

Never really heard of him before, but his credibility is definitely shot.

It is also possible that this was done as a negotiation ploy by somebody in GSP's group.

Dana: OMG 50M, that crazy bastard.

GSP: 25M.

Dana: That is much better.

As I said, if Helwani doesn't confirm or even acknowledge a rumor I tend to not believe it. Straka seems like a nice guy but rarely do I believe anything he reports. Phone Post

If you're a fan of ANY of the bigger sports anywhere in the world, you'd know its not just MMA media. All media sucks and when theres no news they have to create buzz about some asinine "rumor" that some anonymous associate of a friend of a friend's gym janitor told them.

As I mostly just follow MMA and Hockey I cant tell you how many times, from the same "journalist" in hockey, that random nonsense that had no basis in reality comes out of his website. "oh theres a rumor so and so is being traded to team x for 5 players. I cant tell you who it is yet as the details are still being worked out but what I can say is that this trade is going to shake up the world of hockey."

MMA journalists are no different. Not better. Not Worse. They're all the same. Even the "great" Ariel Helwani reports on rumors that often are nothing more than someone stirring some shit.

Straka "I heard somebody say something!"

"What's a context?"

"What's a source?"

"Please like me..."

Yeah, unfortunately this sport is notorious for posting "Just in case" stories by hacks in case the blind squirrel did find his nut
